Summary

Five tweens enter a mysterious house and are held hostage by ghosts in this middle grade horror story. 
 
Some houses are more than just haunted . . . they’re hungry. Dash, Dylan, Poppy, Marcus, and Azumi don’t know this at first. They each think they’ve been summoned to Shadow House for innocent reasons. But there’s nothing innocent about Shadow House. Something within its walls is wickedly wrong. Nothing—and nobody—can be trusted. Hallways move. Doors vanish. Ghosts appear. Children disappear. And the way out? That’s disappeared, too . . . Enter Shadow House . . . if you dare.  
 
“Shadow House has everything I love—strange characters, magic and the supernatural, endless danger and adventure—and a mystery I dare any reader to try to solve.” —R. L. Stine, author of the New York Times–bestselling Goosebumps series. 
 
“Poblocki’s meticulously crafted narrative is chilling . . . A thrill for any reader who knows the only thing more frightening than an unopened door is being locked behind one.” —Kirkus Reviews
